Technical and Material Requirements by Course Title

Introduction:

School administrators or staff members may have a need to quickly assemble information about multiple courses for the purpose of setting up a lab or computer room. These courses may have additional software or technical requirements and/or textbooks, which are not included in the course cost.  The instructions below outline a process for obtaining this information without accessing each separate course syllabus.

Details:

  1. First, access the Course List Summary of Technical & Software Requirements, Textbooks, & Additional Costs sheet.
    • The first column titled Courses, contains a list of course names in alphabetical order.
    • Columns B through G provide details related to technical, software, and hardware requirements for each course.
    • Columns H through J state whether a texts or eTexts are required for the course, ISBN numbers associated, and estimated costs of these texts, if any.
    • The final column, K, will list any additional materials required for each course.
  2. Next, tap the Data tab, select Filter Views and then choose Create new temporary filter view.
    The Course List Summary of Technical & Software Requirements, Textbooks, & Additional Costs Google Sheet is showing the Data menu expanded and has an arrow pointing to the “Create new temporary filter view” choice within the Filter views option.
  3. At this point, tap the Course column drop-down icon, select the “Clear” option, and then place a checkmark next to all applicable courses. When finished, tap the OK button to display the course(s) you selected.
    The Course List Summary of Technical & Software Requirements, Textbooks, & Additional Costs Google Sheet is showing the expanded filtered Course column menu. Arrows point to the Clear link and to the checkmarks next to the course names.

Limited Course Capacity

We’re sorry to inform you that we have reached capacity for several of our Semester 1 and Trimester 1 courses. You’ll notice when attempting to enroll students in our Student Learning Portal that some courses are unavailable. While we are no longer accepting new enrollments for these courses at this time, many courses continue to remain open for enrollment.

With many students across the state 100% remote, demand for our online courses is greater than ever before. Because every course we offer is taught by a Michigan-certified teacher, this high volume of enrollments has created capacity issues for our teachers who provide each and every student with individual feedback.

While the Michigan Virtual team anticipated and planned for significant increases in student enrollments this Fall, the increased demand we’ve experienced has been unprecedented. As a result, we are taking steps to hire even more part-and full-time teachers to support larger numbers of student enrollments for Semester 2 as well as for Trimester 2 and 3. 

For schools that still need online learning options this year, please fill out the form at the bottom of our virtual pathways page to meet with someone to discuss other solutions. While some of our teacher-led courses are full, we may still have the capacity to help you in upcoming terms or can discuss timing to implement a whole-school or collaborative program in which local teachers from your school/district use our online course content to teach students. We also have free course content and resources available for you to use.

We know this is an incredibly stressful time for all, and we’re sorry if the courses you’re looking for are unavailable. We never want to turn away a student who wants to learn from us. Our top concern, however, is student success, and we have a policy to not take on additional enrollments if we cannot guarantee that all students will have a quality online learning experience. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate the unusually high volume of enrollments we are receiving.
